What is your eschatological view?
I'm so PRE millennial that I don't eat POST Toasties.
Think you'll find great divergence within the PRE-mill camp on the BaptistBoard than between pre/post/a mill overall.
Variety over pre-mill pre-trib/mid-trib/pre-wrath/post-trib etc
The second coming is only ONE aspect of eschatology.
I am amillennial.
I was amillenial long after it was popular. . . (and it seems to have made me unpopular amoung premillenialists).
Pre-Mil, Pre-Trib, Prepared, Preserved,...I'd go on but, I can't think of any more Pre's right now.
How about Pan-Millenial?
It will all pan out in the end.
Happily and totally agree.
Having said that, In the end God will do it His way, in His time, and it will be done right. Then we will all know for sure
I tend to follow the paradigm Jesus prescribed in Acts 1.7-8 when the disciples were asking eschatological questions:
"It's none of your business. Now get busy being my witnesses." (my paraphrase)
It is interesting that in the final words Jesus spoke he redirected the disciples' thinking from eschatology to evangelism. That in itself should remind us of the priority of the two.
Yes, we need to keep eschatology in its proper perspective. I think it's become much too divisive for many. An obsession for a few.
However, a significant part of Scripture is devoted to it, and our view of eschatology will influence our reading and understanding of a lot of the rest of Scripture.
So it's still important, in my opinion.
I recently read Three Views on the Milleneum edited by Darrel Bock. It contains articles, one each from a post-mil, an a-mil, and a pre-mil. After each article from a particular viewpoint, the other two writers respond to what was said. It was a very helpful read. And, none of them accused the others of being heretics. They wouldn't be at home on the BB at all! And I will tip my hand by saying that Craig Blaising's defense of premillenialism was the best defense of that view that I have ever read.
I am Amill, not partial preterist or full preterist either.
Please explain to us, what yur intepreting on John 5:27-29; John 6:39,40,44, and 54 telling us, that both saved and not saved will be resurrecton on the LAST day.
Tell me, what "LAST DAY" stand for?
I'm Amill... Partial Preterist... From an historical point of view!... Brother Glen The Primitive Baptist
I voted a-mill, although I am really pretty agnostic on the subject; it's not something I get my knickers in a twist over. But as others have said, it can influence your world view - for example if you're pre-mill, you tend to think things are going to get worse before they get better (eg the Exclusive Brethren, who really don't think it's worth engaging with the World as it is doomed; don't forget Darby pretty much came up with pre-milleniumism)
Yours in Christ
I believe the gospel we preach must include everything that Jesus taught (Matthew 28:20), including what we must face before he comes to gather us together (Matthew 24:3-31).
I've heard the gospel preached in this manner: "Get saved now or you'll have to go through the great tribulation. God has promised all believers a rapture before the tribulation." What could happen to the faith of some of those saved on this basis, if there's no rapture before the tribulation? Could some begin to think they were sold a bill of goods, that the gospel is a sham?
